The Ruapuna Raceway Park neighbours have, in recent years, been objecting to the noise made at the Park.
And as Lessees of the Park, The Canterbury Car Club has had to answer those objections, and sort a solution that works both for the Park, and for the neighbours and mitigate the noise. As part of that process, sound monitors will be installed at the Park over by the Speedway track. Drag racing will be monitored against a 95dB noise level, as will the Formula 5000 race cars. All other race cars will be restricted to 90dB.
As part of the process, the Canterbury Car Club incurred significant legal and sound engineering costs.
As a result of those costs, the Canterbury Car Club has no choice but to increase charges to all users of the Park in the coming season. And as a result of that, The Pegasus Bay Drag Racing Club will also have no choice but to increase charges to racers and spectators in the coming season. At this stage we are attempting to find the balance between covering the increased charges and not making racing prohibitively expensive for participants.
We will not be holding a winter street meet series this year and our opening summer race meeting will be on Labour Weekend Sunday 26 October 2014. It will be the opening round of the IHRA National Series, and also the opening round of the Track Series. We welcome IHRA and NZDRA licences and we also welcome racers with MSNZ permits. Racers in street legal cars running 11.0 and slower can race on their civil drivers licence.
Our race dates for the coming season are close to being finalised and will be announced shortly.
